I'm not sure what this means.

You don't have permission to build the database. This is likely due to
your shared hosting account.

Your host will know.
You forgot to mention what IC you're trying to install. I've installed
IC on a shared host, but it was a special type, known as a virtual
server. This allowed me to run daemons, and I had my own copy of
apache, mysql, etc, but everything was under my home directory.
Your host may not be a virtual server, and so you'd have to ask them to
install IC for you. (Good luck.)
There are many good people on the Interchange-biz list who host IC. You
could also try a virtual server, and install it yourself. I personally
used Verio, and I think they have a 30-day free trial:
